Waking up at 5am isn’t most kid’s version of a fun school holidays, although for show stock kids waking up to tend to their animals brings an excitement like no other.

For the beef shorthorn kids working as a team adds to the fun as we make lasting friendships not just with our animals but with each other.

Whilst at the end of the day our feet are sore, the exhaustion starts to really kick in and our shoulders ache, we wouldn’t trade our passion for the world because the bonds created with the beautiful animals we work with are irreplaceable and the friendships made are full of laughs, amazing memories and of course hard work.
